Do I Need a Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation?

Lubbock plastic surgery


You decided you want to make changes to your appearance, but you’re not sure which breast procedure is right for you. In Lubbock, plastic surgery procedures are carefully explained and planned by Dr. Rowley, so you have the best experience and result from the options you choose.  Whether you want a breast lift, augmentation, or combination of breast procedures, the choice you make depends on a variety of personal needs and cosmetic goals.


Breast Lift

A breast lift will reposition your nipples to a more upward placement. Skin is tightened to reshape the contour of your breast. This procedure gives you a more youthful look and shape but doesn’t increase breast volume. A breast lift refreshes the appearance of your breasts but doesn’t change their size or reposition the nipples.


Breast Augmentation

Implants are intended to increase the size of your breasts. You can choose from a variety of implant sizes, shapes, and materials to get the particular desired look that fits your expectations.  Having implants adds volume to sagging breasts but also adds more weight to stretched skin that is already not supporting breast tissue well.

If you only have mild sagging, implants will give a lift to your breasts. But, if you have more severely sagging breasts, you can discuss the option of implants with a breast lift with your doctor.


Combination of Breast Procedures

Some women will choose a combination of breast procedures. If your breasts have lost volume and show significant sagging, a combination of breast lift with implants can better help you improve your appearance. You can enjoy the benefits of a lift with repositioned nipples and excised extra skin while you also add volume to your breast size.


Ask yourself these questions and discuss your goals with your doctor to better decide which procedure or combination is right for you.

  • Do my nipples point down or out?
  • Am I happy with the size of my breasts?
  • Do I like the fullness of the upper part of my breast?
  • How bad is the sagging of my breast?
